It’s Friendly Friday again and Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere picked Posing for today’s prompt. This promptly reminded me of our trip to Seoul, South Korea a few years back. We were on our way to Bali and had decided to spend a few days in Seoul to not only help us adjust to the time difference, but also to explore this fascinating city. There were many highlights during our stay, but for me, watching the traditional Korean ceremony of the Changing of the Royal Guard was special. If you find yourself in Seoul, I highly recommend reserving a bit of time to watch this colorful and fascinating event at the Gyeongbokgung Palace. It’s performed twice daily, except on Tuesdays. Be sure to also stroll the palace and its beautiful grounds. The magnificent buildings, stone faced guards and the mostly Korean crowd are unforgettable!
Thank you Zendog for letting me use this video clip!
If you would like to participate in these Friendly Friday Challenges, head over to Snow’s blog and take a look at her post on posing! I especially love the photograph of the old VW bug! It not only reminds me of Europe, but also of some neighbors we once had here. They had an almost identical VW bug which they’d tow behind a charming older RV to watch their Alma mater football team, the Oregon Ducks, play each and every home game at Autzen Stadium.
I hope that you’ll check out other participants interpretations of today’s prompt as well. They can be found through links in Snow’s comment section, along with details on how to participate yourself!
I hope you enjoyed this colorful Royal Changing of the Guard ceremony from
